Application Deadline for ACC Vacancies Extended

The President’s Office on Sunday extended the application deadline for the vacancies at the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). The opportunity has reopened following the resignation of five members of the commission.

Parliament’s Independent Institutions Committee decided in November that they would recommend the dismissal of members found to be underperforming following their review. Following its review – the Committee voted to initiate the process of dismissal of all members of ACC in early December and recommended a vote of no-confidence motion on the Parliament floor against the ACC members.

Two of the commission’s members – Ibrahim Shakeel and Ali Ashraf – resigned after the committee began its review. The remaining members; the commission’s president Mariyam Shiuna, vice president Fathimath Anoola, and Aishath Abdulla – tendered their resignation a day after the no-confidence motion was taken.

Though initially applications were opened from January 5 to January 17, the new deadline to submit applications is Monday, January 31, 2022. Interested parties may submit their applications, along with relevant documents, to the President’s Office from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on January 30-31, 2022.
